1 A number of other vague ocular changes have been described as occasionally present in primary toxic goitre. The relationship of these various ocular changes, lagophthalmos, mydriasis, pupillary inequality, nystagmus, abnormal pulsation of retinal arteries, pigmentation of conjunctivae, bruit over eyeballs, etc., to primary toxic goitre have not been established, and it is doubtful if they are other than coincidental changes. They will not be considered in this discussion.
